…the geese are getting fat. The people, on the other hand, are largely getting stressed organising presents and Christmas dinner, decorating trees and houses. Why not get yourself back in the real Christmas spirit with our advent services this year?
As usual, we’ll be building up to our main Christmas event the Sunday before Christmas day. This year it’s the 20th and entitled ‘What a difference a day makes‘. We’ll have carols, kids forgetting their lines and not knowing where to go or when to go there. To top it all off, we finish with a Hog Roast, mince pies and chocolate log. It’s a great evening.
Here’s our full Advent plan (all at 10:30, except 20th Dec):
||Stir it up for Christmas
||The rights ingredients for a great Christmas
||Driving Home for Christmas
||It had to be you
||Wise men say
|20th Dec 5pm
||What a difference a day makes
||Carol Service, followed by hog roast
||Dreams can come true
Our Sunday evening series, Life on the Frontline starts this Sun, 18th Oct and runs until the last session on 22nd Nov.
The series is video based, and shows us how to live as ‘whole life disciples’ whatever we do, wherever we are and whoever we’re with.
Do join use for a series that promises to help us bring the Good News to those around us without being ‘that guy’.
The Grid is back!
Saturday 10th Oct at Springbourne Christian Centre we’re hosting one of the Elim Serious4God Gathering 100 events in association with the other local Elim Churches.
More than a normal Grid, we’re starting at 3pm with a fun and games afternoon, and the evening celebration starts at 7pm. £3 for the whole afternoon, £2 if you’re just coming for the evening celebration.
We’ve got Graffiti workshops, bungee runs, Hog Roast, Skalextric and more stuff that I can’t remember. All this in addition to our usual awesome evening of worship, teaching and fun.

Our new Sunday morning series starts on 13th Sept at 10:30 (as usual). ‘Defining moments with Jesus’ will walk us through key moments in people’s lives when they met with Jesus. All the moments were different, but all the people we will hear about went away changed in one way or another.
We are starting our new series ‘Living above your circumstances’ on 3rd May. The series promises to be a great set of messages so please come along.
